I am trying to plan a road trip for my family (myself, husband and 2 boys ages 4 and 8).
We live in Ontario (Kitchener) and I am looking to drive up through Montreal, Quebec City, Tadoussac and then take the ferry into Riviere-du-loup (I think)
We are also tossing around the idea of hitting some of the East coast.
The thing is we are looking for a trip between 1 and 2 weeks. We can not afford to spend $100 in a hotel every night. We do have tents and are open to camping, although I think we would like to also stay at Inns or B and B's or something of the like as well (variety). Maybe some hotels.
I have done some searching and I think we would like to hit La Ronde, the whale watching in Tadoussac (but seems very expensive???), Quebec City (near the Chateau), and also Village Vacances Valcartier ( we will stay in the tipis there).
I have to be honest in saying other than these specific things I am not sure what else we want. there is just so much information that I am not sure what should be on our itinerary.
I see another forum with places to hit as a single person...but not as a family.
And although I want my children to have fun and also learn a lot while on this trip I also do not want them exhausted either by doing too much.
We will be leaving around mid-August.
Any suggestions on where/how to drive there, accomadations, recommendations of activites and places that would be great to see within this time frame would be great.
I would like to see NFLD...but not sure that is realistic...
Thanks so much!
